not been all smooth sailing. starbucks got a roasting for paying no corporation tax on new sales of some $600 million. it's now volunteered to make some payments. starbucks arrangements are perfectly legal and typical of a multinational of its kind. but critics have not been silent, forcing starbucks into damage control. >> one of the things that's really tricky about that situation on corporation tax is how do you educate the public of the complexities of the british tax code, and does the public really care about those intricacies? probably not. so, on the one hand, by educating the public, you look defensive. by not educating them, then you're almost encouraging them to think that you are a big, greedy, terrible company trying to exploit your workers. it's a very difficult thing to play. >> big numbers expected later on from starbucks. >> aaron, thank you, thank you. do stay with us. there's much more to come here on "g.m.t." our science correspondent explains why biscuits provide a clue to the link between dogs and their canine ancestors. >> now, to the controversial construction of

to eliminate a lot of tax breaks and loopholes that we heard from our colleagues about in order to reduce the deficit in a balanced way. if you don't do that, you sock it to everybody else in the country. let's pass a balanced approach to reducing our deficit and not one that takes it out of the expenditure. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from michigan. mr. camp: i would just say w have already increased the debt limit over $5 trillion in the obama administration, almost a 50% inkeys in the debt limit. let me also say we have had many several, temporary short-term increases in the de limit before there's been a more permanent long-term increase in 1987, 1990, 1996. it is not unprecedented, the action we're going to be taking today. with that, i yield two minutes to the distinguished member of the ways and means committee, the gentleman from washington state, mr. reichert. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for two minutes. mr. reichert: thank you, mr. speaker. let me see if i can simplify this a little bit. so there's three branc

potential increasing of taxes on cigarettes. it happened in chicago where you had business groups, the black chamber of commerce, they said, oh, this is going to hurt small businesses but then the argument was, wait a minute, when you look at cancer rates among african-americans, how do you say don't do that when it's affecting african-americans? and so i think the naacp, the new york chapter is going to have to have an explanation because, again, obesity among african-americans is huge. >> well, the explanation is that they'd like to see a more holistic approach, that this is not the way to do it. it's a little bit like your gun debate. like don't do this, do a big picture, you're never going to get the solution. i think there is some merit to that argument. however -- >> also a loophole here. they say that small business owners are affected, convenience stores, but larger stores like -- according to "the new york times," larger stores like 7-eleven would be exempt from soda restrictions because of a court in new york's regulatory structure. so they're saying 7-eleven will continue to be ab

't think we can continue to tax the american economy when we need economic growth but it's about prioritizing spending. i'm a fiscal conservative who believes foreign aid can be useful but we have to get spending under control. will you use your position to encourage the president to work with us in good faith to solve the debt -- the debt and deficit issue? >> i spent six months, i guess, or five month, as a member of the super committee and i put enormous amount of energy and hope that we would be able to get the big bargain, the grand deal. i'm not here to go through all the the tails why we didn't. but there was a very hard line, nonnegotiating position that prevented us from being able to come to an agroment which incidentally we just came to. but we came to it with far less on the table and far less accomplished than we would have had if we'd come to that agreement six months ago or a year ago. so my hope is, yes, i certainly will weigh in on that to the degree that it has an impact on my ability to do my job and the ability of the state department to do its job. we cannot
